Bread machine recipes never work out the first time due to varying factors. The first time I tried this recipe the dough was too weak and the bread fell. After adjusting water, yeast, and gluten, it came out perfect. My adjustments: 1 cup water 2 tsp yeast 1 tbsp gluten 1 tbsp whole flax seed Bake on whole wheat cycle Read More

This recipe has way too much water & honey. I had to keep adding flour and the loaf was very heavy and sunken in the middle. It also did not completely bake. Read More

I don't have a bread machine but following the ingredients and regular bread making techniques the bread turned out great. No modifications made. The bread was loved by all even my mother-in-law. Will be making again today. Read More

My bread loaf had a slight cave in the middle after baking. Technically the liquid content is too high for the dry content. The taste was still great if you want a nutty dense bread which is really healthy. All of which was my goal. Second time I made this bread I increased the flour to 3 cups (2 cups stone ground whole wheat and 1 bread flour) and I always substitute powder buttermilk. Reduced the water to 1 1/4 cups. The loaf did not have the slight cave in and the taste was still great however I preferred the original set of ingredients. Too much water in a loaf this dense equated to a more moist bread. Definitely a recipe which I will use again. Love the 3/4 cup of Flax seed mill. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I followed Andrew's modifications and added one emergency modification of my own...I didn't have powdered milk...so I skipped the water and added 1 cup of skim milk (microwave warmed). De-lish! Read More

This healthy bread loaf has been accepted well by the family including children. Like the previous rater I two had to add 1/4 cup plain flour to the recipe so that it would rise correctly. The taste was great not to mention the healthy use of flax seed (omega 3's) to the childrens diet as well as mine. We will use the one again. Thanks for the recipe Read More

Excellent. I make a couple of loaves of this each week. My six year old loves it and I like it enough to eat it plain. I have a slice of it almost every morning. I use two cups of hard white whole wheat flour and a cup of processed all-purpose flour. This makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf. Works great for me. Read More

A soft and tasty loaf. After reading the other reviews I decided to add 1/2 cup extra whole wheat flour; I left everything else the same. I used the 1.5 lb "grain" setting on my bread machine. It rose to a tall square-ish loaf. Read More

Oh these rolls were so good! They were my first taste of flax seed and I was so happy with them. I added quite a bit of wheat flour to my bread machine though because it just wasn't elastic enough. Read More

Like other reviewers I had to add flour to make the dough elastic. I added more than others it seems--about 3/4 c. Like Kim (another reviewer) I don't use a bread machine but this turned out great in an 8x4 pan in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Read More
